From the Pastor’s Desk:



What Love Will Endure

 

The Beatitudes are Saint Matthew’s presentation of a sort of ‘New Law’, a new revelation of God’s overall plan for human beings, comparable to what happened on Mount Sinai in the Old Testament, with Jesus being the new Moses. Some translations use the word “happy” instead of “blessed” which is unfortunate, because making a connection between Christ and happiness could be misleading.

 

With the word “happy” there is a danger that we may come to think that living the Christian religion will automatically make us happy. But even a quick glance at the Beatitudes makes it clear they’re hardly out to bring us happiness. Instead, these sayings are challenging, disturbing and even a bit scary.

 

The Beatitudes predict that if we are to experience spiritual happiness as disciples of Jesus, it will entail at times some obviously unpleasant life-situations: poverty, tears, going without, and even being unacceptable by large numbers of society or even our own family.

 

In these sayings, Jesus warns any future would-be disciple that they may have to be willing to have their life turned upside-down, if need be, as we later read in Saint Matthew’s Gospel where the New Law is summed up in the twofold command to love; love of God and neighbor. The Beatitudes are about the things that love will suffer, they are about what love is willingly to endure, the things that love will find itself able to give, and to find satisfaction and even delight in giving. And these things come in many different forms.

 

The teaching of Christ, then, puts a literally infinite demand on us. We can’t say, ‘No more’ or ‘That’s it’. His teaching admits no limits in what may be asked of us in the way of sacrifice. We express every time we celebrate the feast day of a martyr, the first category of saint to be recognized in the Church. The Christian religion is at times a hard way. It is sometimes the way of the Cross. But it has the right to make such demands, since it springs from a great promise, not only to help us, but also to raise us up to share in the divine life.

 

Jesus wants each of us; our intellect, our emotions, our energies, our talents, our surplus income, our imagination, our freedom. He wants them so as to consecrate them to the Father, that God may be all in all, and for us to reflect more perfectly God’s image and likeness within us.

Divine Mercy in My Soul

St. Faustina writes, “Today I was awakened by a great storm. …I began to pray that the storm would do no harm, when I heard the words: ‘Say the chaplet I have taught you, and the storm will cease. ‘ I began immediately to say the chaplet and hadn’t even finished it when the storm suddenly ceased, and I heard the words: ‘Through the chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.’”(Diary, 1731) If you don’t have a copy of the Divine Mercy Chaplet, at the back of the Church, you can pick up a Divine Mercy Image Holy Card with The Divine Mercy Chaplet on the back.

Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs.” (Matthew 5:3)
